Ok I'm pumped about this record.... This would almost be like my dream album if I had to put one together. This is the official Documentary/Trailer for N.A.S.A's new album 'Spirit of Apollo'.

I'll be @ their release party/screening at Cinespace on Tuesday...RSVP Now!

'Ninja Bi__hes' ... 'Go hard on them hoes'..... Lol.... Side note: If a lot of crackheads approach you its because you tend to hang out in locations where several crackheads convene and you might want to consider other locales..

DJ Sean G, hot spot club DJ and the official DJ of Pacific Division, gives us his new mixtape via his Myspace. Nothing new here these tracks have all already been out, but Sean G's last mixtape Lever 2000 was dope so I had to post the 2nd edition. I was looking forward to this like everyone else because I was hoping that 'She' track was the full version..., but not even Pac Div's own DJ is gonna give us that... You'd figure that you would want your own DJ leaking your music and not someonelse, but ....

The song is for the the charity War Child Intl.(take a minute to learn about the great work War Child does) and is a dub cover of the Clash's classic track of the same name...The track is featured on the larger Covers album for the Organization called 'Heroes'. The album will include work by Tv On the Radio, Beck, Franz Ferdinand, Estelle, Duffy and more.. I'm a sucker for a good cause. Can anyone name another recent popular song that sampled this Clash track?
Lily Alen Covers Clash
It seems inappropriate to post just about anything else on this day in history. i'll be back to that tomorrow morning. I've been glued to the tv since 7:30 am when I woke up to catch the inauguration.

WOW!...Rebook is going big on the strap trend with a couple of strap sneaker releases recently. People are sleeping on Reebok, but I've been saying for a while they're pricing their releases low and doing a lot of experimentation. Thats a formula thats gonna have sneaker heads checkin for them. But Gray Herringbone kicks. I love it!
spotted @ Sneaker Files
New Music Monday - 01/11 - 18/09 - D.R.E, Donnis, Jay-Z, Mike Shinoda, Bangladesh, Justin.. and more!
Man this week was crazy on the music front....And I only put the songs I like on these playlists...
Jay-Z Performing live from Jeezy's 'Presidential Status' Inaugural Ball gives the crowd his remix to Jeezy's 'My President is Black'.....Sick!
"Barack Obama ran so all the children could fly...so I'ma spread my wings you could meet me in the sky!" ...Yezzzzir!
“My president is black, in fact he’s half white, so even in a racist’s mind he’s half right … My president is black, but his house is all white,”.....lol
Somebody has Photoshop Skills^^
Pharrell frees over no beat on DJ EMI's new Pharrell Mixtape 'Out Of This World'. I know this is old, but I've never heard this freestyle so if you have holler @ me and let me know where this is from...This sounds like the Pharrell who was so sure he could translate into the rap game successfully.... Gotta admire the blind ambition.
The mixtape is filled with a bunch of new and old Pharrell tracks with Common, Usher, Clipse, Nelly, DPGs and more... Definitely worth the freeload if you haven't been paying attention to all the blogs posting this stuff..

These actually haven't been released yet, but when I saw them the other day I knew that everything else I was thinking of posting could wait. Converse has really fallen by the way side among the premium sneaker releases excluding some exclusive collaborations. And this new Undefeated collab is right up there with any collab release I've seen recently.
The Poorman's weapon has a nylon upper(nylon kicks are the big thing now it seems..), classic Converse sole, Undefeated logo built onto the sole on the side and back, and orange lining on the interior. the design was inspired by the design of old military Bomber jackets.
One thing I always liked about Converse (used to rock Chucks a lot) is their classic style and their unwillingness to simply follow popular sneaker trends...., but on the same token that has also meant less focus on innovation and experimentation in their sneaker design.
These kicks will be available later this month @ Undefeated and other premium sneaker retailers.
